I’ve never understood this type of praise tbh. It’s like me praising Asda cause they have bread and milk in stock… And can serve me within a half hour.
I should bloody well hope that a tyre shop would have tyres in stock and could fit them.
Praise would be given if you rocked up 5 min before closing and then they still helped you out even if it took them well past their operational hours.
Seems these days praise is being given out like sweets:ermm:
At the end of the day the discount is offered to be used. That 10% might be the difference between someone going to a competitor. So to answer your question; not to everyone. Gold leaf engineering round the corner charge the same. I would say they are reasonable but the reason why I use Essential Rubber is the honesty.
do you know who actually came up with that discounbt, cos as far as i know its never been official, its just everyone ‘assumes’ it is.
gold leaf dont do tyres as far as im aware, or proper bike servidcing etc?
essential’s prices are better than competitors, if your north of the river you go there, south normally FWR.
10% aint **** all anyway, i’d rather tip mick or colin that 10%.
i get decent prices with mick, i’vve known him for some time so that may be why, also i work in the trade so put people his way, end of the day tho, i never ask for discount, makes me feel liek a leech.
I found out about it when I was in there and an LB’er asked for the 10% LB discount and it got done no questions asked. Its only on tyres. Essentially what they are doing is knocking off some of the fitting.
Gold leaf do everything. I just think they are a bit weird in there… Can’t quite put my finger on it.
I went to Essential this morning got two tyres, rear pads and a MOT for the same price as it would have been for just the two tyres from Honda main dealer. Never bothered to ask for a discount we want them to remain in business
in how many threads (it’s not the first time you state it) you ‘work in the trade’ when all your job is is HG sales boy?
Also, if you don’t want to use the 10% discount, then don’t use it, end of. if others want to use it, let 'em use the offer from ER without making a fuss about it.
